Educating Both Mind and Heart

Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all. —Aristotle

As the ninth installment in Teacher Peach’s Heartfelt Quotation Series by PeachQuotes Studio™ depicts, even in Aristotle’s time teachers played a major role in shaping the futures of their students as well as influencing history through their work. By educating both minds and hearts, teachers help students to place and process the concepts their minds are retaining. It is only through knowing what to do with the education they receive, that students can possibly grow to their highest levels.

When were you able to weave together a learning experience that reached your students in both their minds and hearts? Those are the truest teachable moments—an education of which even Aristotle would approve.
